The Ophthalmology department at MMHRC, has its own community-oriented programmes to serve the needy and poor, afflicted with eye problems. The team does excellent work in primary, secondary and tertiary level eye care in Madurai and covers the southern districts of Tamilnadu. In tune with the hospitals commitment to serving the impoverished, the department conducts regular eye camps in seven districts totally free of cost. The department has assumed the role of a comprehensive therapeutic facility in the region, with the fruition of our plans to acquire a perimeter to provide effective screening and to strengthen the glaucoma clinic.

A modest section for opticals is functioning on the campus for the benefit of the poor patients. This has been inspired by the global concern for diabetic eye care as the core area for development in the coming years. Rehabilitation of visually handicapped patients is the department's next priority area. A low vision Centre will soon be functional as a part of our expansion programme of the existing contact lens clinic
